The NFL moves Tampa Bay’s November 18 game against Chicago into a more appealing time slot…also today’s schedule in the Buccaneers.com Broadcast Network


The Bucs-Bears game on November 18 is on the move to a new time

If you forgot to turn your clocks back Saturday night, you may have shown up a wee bit early for Sunday's Tampa Bay Buccaneers game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Now you have to update your pocket schedule as well, or you'll be very early for the November 18 game against Chicago.

The NFL has announced changes to the starting times of three November games, including the Bears visit to Raymond James Stadium on the 18th. That contest, originally set to kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET, will now begin at 4:15 p.m. ET.

In addition, FOX has already slotted its number-one broadcasting team of John Madden and Pat Summerall for that game, marking the fourth time this season that Madden and Summerall will call the action for a Bucs game.

Tampa Bay's matchup with Chicago may have gained some added luster when the Bears got off to a better than expected start.

Chicago is currently in first place in the NFC Central with a 5-1 record. This is also the Bucs' last season in the NFC Central, which means the Bucs-Bears rivalry will be played far less frequently in subsequent years.


Speaking of broadcast schedules, Buccaneers.com has a full day of video options ahead on Monday. From Sunday's highlights to press conference coverage to live audio chat, the Broadcast Network will keep you informed and entertained the day after one of the most uplifting victories in recent memory.
